Electric Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV boasts 367 mile range

Mercedes-Benz has revealed a new SUV variant of the all-electric EQE saloon.

And with a range of up to 367 miles between charges, depending on which version you choose, it should live up to its billing as a ‘multi-purpose’ vehicle that combines ‘function and aesthetics.

The EQE saloon was launched earlier this year with a range of up to 384 miles and positioned just behind the flagship, mile-munching EQS saloon.

The EQE SUV is, as you can imagine, a high-riding, more practical incarnation of its EQE saloon sibling.

Just to confuse matters, there’s an EQS SUV on the way, too.

The EQE SUV is expected to cost from around £75,000 when it officially goes on sale in 2023, which puts it in the same market as the BMW iX, the top-of-the-range Tesla Model Y Performance and the sporty Ford Mustang Mach-E GT.

And the 367 range figure is right up there with rivals, trumping the likes of the Tesla Model X but falling just short of the BMW iX’s 380 mile figure, or the regular Mach-E’s 379 mile distance.

There will be three different versions of the EQE SUV available.

The first rung is the rear-wheel drive ‘EQE 350+’, which has a power of 292 PS, 565 Nm of torque, and the largest range figure of the trio.

The mid-range ‘EQE 350 4MATIC’ keeps the power output the same, but adds extra torque and all-wheel drive. The range drops to a maximum of 347 miles.

At the top of the tree is the ‘EQE 500 4MATIC’. Here power jumps to 408 PS, torque to a whopping 858 Nm, and the range reduces to around 340 miles.

The Mercedes-EQ team is keeping performance figures close to its chest at present, but you can expect the EQE SUV to be fairly rapid. The EQE Saloon can cover 0-62mph in around 6.4 seconds.

There is, though, a distinct, hot version of the EQE SUV on the way in the form of the Mercedes-AMG EQE SUV, a car the German firm is calling its first ever ‘all-electric performance SUV’.

The Mercedes-AMG EQE ‘43’ has power of 483 PS while the Mercedes-AMG EQE ‘53 4MATIC+’ SUV has power of up to 696 PS as well as 1,000 Nm of torque - resulting in a 3.5 second 0-62 mph time.

To put that into perspective, it means the Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+ SUV is quicker than an electric Porsche Taycan GTS.

When it comes to the regular EQE SUV, there’s a full suite of driver assistance and safety systems as standard, including Active Brake Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and the Parking Package with reversing camera.

Mercedes-Benz reckons the EQE SUV is ‘particularly manoeuvrable and agile’, coming with four-link suspension at the front and an independent multi-link suspension at the rear. The optional ‘Airmatic’ air suspension should also ensure a cosseting ride quality.

In the cabin, you can tick the ‘MBUX Hyperscreen’ box as an extra, which gives you three large infotainment screens that ‘merge almost seamlessly into one another to create a screen band over 141 centimetres wide’.

A heat pump to protect the battery’s life is standard, as is 170 kW DC rapid charging capabilities, which brings 220 miles worth of charge in just 15 minutes.
